Ok, here’s the issue.
- It snowed a whole bunch
- Low temperatures mean the snow will not melt and the streets that got cleared will be iced over Friday morning
- The streets of Seattle are already littered with stuck, spun out, abandoned vehicles
- Seattleites in general do not have proper snow tires and have no idea how to drive in the stuff
- School has been canceled, so my kids will be home and possibly rambunctious
- I work for an agency that cares for people with AIDS
- Obviously, the clinical staff has to show up no matter what the weather
- I am not clinical staff–I’m a grant writer
- Nobody will suffer if I’m not there
- The management team recently issued an edict directing the administrative staff (including me) to make all possible effort to get to work in inclement weather, in solidarity with the clinical staff
- I skipped out because of the snow today
Should I hop in my minivan and make the trek to the office in the morning?
Let’s take a poll! (I hope this works, damn it.)
|Do you think I should struggle through the snow to get to work?|
|Of course you should. How can you even ask such a question? Have you no loyalty?|
|Yes, IF they send a truck with chains to transport you there and back.|
|You should work from home while watching your darling children build a snowperson in the back yard.|
|Go to work on a snow day? Are you insane?|
|Dude, you have a JOB?|

It did! It worked! Rock the vote, people!
Holy $%^&, this picture was taken near downtown Seattle today. Two buses slid on the ice, crashed through the guardrail, and wound up dangling over Interstate 5.
Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt.
So I think staying home was the right choice. *Pats self on back*
